Martha creates sublime masterpieces in the art of cooking as chief of a French gourmet restaurant in Hamburg. She is introverted and exists only for working. Her life undergoes a radical change when her sister dies in an accident and Martha has to take in her eight-year-old niece Lina. It is only the presence of Mario, the new sous chef, who brings light and pasta into the lifes of Martha and Lina.
Just as a tender romance develops between Martha and Mario, Lina`s unknown father suddenly appears. He wants to take his daughter back with him to Italy. And Martha? She has to come to a decision.
